I can eat solid food

Great news. BE 05-01 ate some salmon this afternoon. Cindy was persistent, putting it in his face to the point of ticking him off. Then he decided that he wanted to see what the fuss was about. He took the piece away from Cindy and chowed down. We gave him a little more and then he was cleaning up what we dropped on the mew floor. He remembered what he was missing and I don't think he liked tube feeding. At this rate he should do real well. Please continue to keep your fingers crossed.

Earlier in the day Lauren Maxwell from KTVA Channel 11 came by and did a news story. The Channel 11 crew gave a good pitch on why not to use lead shot. Thanks for the support folks!

Here's another link telling you why you should use steel shot and not lead shot or lead weights or sinkers. www.wdfw.wa.gov/wlm/game/water/nontoxicshotfinal.htm
